Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples: the Search for Legal Remedies
Randall S. Abate and Elizabeth Ann Kronk (eds)
Edward Elgar Publishing, 2013 | ISBN: 978 1 78100 179 0

The book examines climate change through an indigenous perspective in North and South America, the Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand, Asia and Africa. The contributors are either practicing lawyers or law professors. They explain the problems faced by indigenous populations and break down attempts to devise legal, workable solutions. Chapters outline ways indigenous populations can navigate climate change law, and provide a review of national-level successes and international-level shortcomings, focusing on both mitigation and adaptation-related law. Part I provides the context and principles; and Part II includes perspectives on international organizations and case studies from several regions of the world.
